As always impossible to tell the exact origin. Could be console or not.
But I def. think we’re talking King of Pop here!
Thrilling!

I'm guessing then that the console Honey is based on has the same name as the last name of one of the members of the Beatles (no, not Ringo :D )

This will be very interesting indeed.

Can you explain exactly what "double" preamps means?

Nice to see some filters!

It means that the user may insert separately the mic preamp section OR the VCA/output section OR both.

And BTW the filters are really gorgeous...

Yeah, the trim on Ivory is so great! I'm constantly doing the same in Amber and Green, but having to change in the input/output is much more time consuming than that trim knob.

Now that you've given us a taste, I think we want more of that! I'd love it in each of the newer EQs...

Thanks for considering!

Well, those in/out knobs are useless to me. At least modify their values to -/+18dB.

well we'll try to use it more often, it comes for free in core6
It introduced several bugs I'm still working on, though, ie a nasty "sound boost" which delayed the release for the update.
Ivory is "almost" ready for a new release, we'll put it in beta today

Excuse my ignorance, but what is the point of an input knob AND an input trim knob. Isn't the straight input knob also to trim back or boost up the gain coming in?

In the case of Ivory, the input and output knobs control the volume coming in and out. The trim knob controls how hard the preamp is getting hit... but the volume remains the same.

So to get more or less preamp color, you'd have to turn up or down the input/output knobs in Amber and Green (and presumably Magenta). It's often difficult to A/B to see exactly what changes are happening with the preamp coloring. In Ivory, you just start turning the trim knob to see what it does. I find it very useful and great for fine tuning the tone. I would definitely use these features if there were included in any of the other plugins.

That makes perfect sense, thank you for the very detailed explanation. I don't see an input trim knob on the Honey graphic in the first entry of this thread, though. Looks like there _could_ be room in between the input and output knobs to squeeze one in :D

This is an awesome feature. I wish all of the acqua plugins had this.
